If Star stays away from an injury he's a 1st round pick. If he improves he
game even slightly he's the number 1 pick.Just imagine the
frantic emotions from down south if the Utes score 2 first picks in the last 8
The future of football in Utah,is UTAH
Wow, this article had nothing to do with BYU but hedgehog reinforced little
brother's inferiority complex to their big brother, by bringing BYU into
the discussion.Nice work! Who needs a PR or marketing group at BYU
when you have hedgehog and others like him drawing everyone's attention off
of little brother to BYU?
It would be 3 top picks if this dream scenario took place when you factor in the
NBA (Bogut) for the last 8 years.
He sounds highly regarded. Did he consider enter the draft this year?
Star is a serious beast - he was voted by his peers last year as the best
defensive lineman in the PAC12.I hope he has another great year and
can stay healthy. The Utes need him up there creating havock in the
backfield.I'm not sure he will be the number 1 pick or not but
he could very realistically be in the top 10. Next years draft is a long time
away and usually the Heisman candidates are in the mix for the first picks.Either way, I'm so glad he decided to stay for his senior year - he
is a strong anchor for the Utes defense.Go Utes!
idablu:He DID consider entering this year's draft, but opted to
return for his Senior year so he could earn his degree. The DNews did a story
on this several weeks back. Had Star opted to forgo his Senior
year, he most definitely would have been drafted. Not "definitely"
drafted like Fangupo, but rather ACTUALLY drafted like Bergstrom.Serious question for Duckhunter and sammyg here:Which scenerio
would be worse for the frantic and emotional Y fans:(a) Seeing
Lotulelei drafted in the 2012 draft -- which would mean watching yet ANOTHER Ute
drafted while their team had none...-OR-(b) Facing
Lotulelei AGAIN in September...On the ONE hand, as more Utes hear
their names called on Draft Day while no cougars do so likewise, it'll
become even MORE difficult to out-recruit the Pac-12 for quality D-1 players.
But on the OTHER hand, the Y had ALREADY lost 7 of the 10 while the Utes had
less talent THEN than we do NOW! And ESPECIALLY since the cougars had more
talent on their sidelines in the last 5-yrs than they do NOW.So
which scenerio is worse little brothers?
It will depend on the year that Barkley has. If he has an elite year, he will be
#1. There is just a premium on QBs and that will not be over looked.PAC 12, #1 and #2, USC and UTAH would be sweet. Here's to
Star having a Consesus All-American year and getting picked #1! Can't wait for the start of the season and....Go Utes!
Good for Star. Hope he has a great year and be the #1. Even us Blue guys like
to see the Utes do well. (OK most of us) Great players deserve the
recognition. Red or Blue
October 4 will be an epic game against USC at Rice-Eccles.Star will get
his chance against Barkley and the #1 rated Trojans.Opposing
offensive lines are fearing Star. Go Utes!
Naval VetThank you for my soliciting my opinion. Doesn't make
any difference whatsoever to me or probably most people.I really
could not care less about kids to the NFL. So few ever make it, it's hardly
worth mentioning but I understand people getting excited over their schools and
the prospects for NFL success.If this gentleman makes it, it's
great, if he doesn't then he's one of the few smarter ones for
sticking it out for another year and getting an education. For most kids,
that's what it's all about anyway, the competition and a free ride
education.College football is more about rivalries, scoreboard,
conference championships, national rankings, Heisman trophies and of course,
national championships.When you get closer to completing your bucket
list, let me know.
Thinkman,Wow, this article had nothing to do with BYU but here you
are reading it. My guess is you know a lot about inferiority complex.
Did anyone on here even read the article about Star?!
Great kid and incredible player. Generally QB's are the top pick in the
draft and my guess is next year will be no exception. Would love to see him be
the top pick but an outstanding and more realistic accomplishment would be the
first defensive player taken in the draft.
sammyg:"Doesn't make any difference whatsoever to
me..."So in other words, both scenerios are equally distressing
to you and your frantic and emotional Y fans. Hmmm. I hadn't thought of
that, but I can see it now. Thank you for your input. I guess we'll all
have to wait a few more weeks until Duckhunter gets back from his convenient
"business trip" to Tulsa.
Star is a great player. . Going to have a great Senior season. I look forward
to the competition this year and seeing how we stack up against the best teams.
Fender,I'd recommend that you don't assume anything.I read the article as I too am a Utah and BYU alum. I am interested in
Utah as I want them to succeed but I also call out ridiculous comments by
hedgehog and others who always seem to bring BYU into a discussion on an article
that was solely focused on Utah and not BYU.Pease brother. For your
benefit, I recommend you don't jump to conclusions with your misguided
I recommend you don't jump to conclusions with your misguided assumptions.
- federKwhitt has sent 17 of his player into the NFL draft. Bronko
has zero.If and when Starr goes in the first round and bYu yet again
sends ZERO into the 2013 draft- there will be a lot of frantic emotion from down

I'll tell you what will help his draft status...a couple of sacks and a
forced fumble on Matt Barkley next fall. Would be sweet.
